Synchronicity

Donovan Lord Do you know about synchronicity? I was just typing an email to someone and as I was typing the words "as close as possible to the original", a man on TV said the EXACT same words AS I was typing them! This happens to me a lot in life. I notice it when [...]

Kindness

Recently I've experienced some major emotional minefields in my life.  These past few weeks have been filled with a sense of unfairness and a lack of understanding from others. It’s a sad statement on the state of the world today when kindness is an oddity and not the norm.   These days people are revered for their [...]

Bring It On

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fd1MDnzJ9U by Donovan Lord   Lately I, Donovan Lord, have felt out of sorts, like I'm restrained yet like I'm about to burst free at the same time. I feel like something big is about to happen in my life - for better or for worse.  I'm not sure what it is, I just have [...]

Kacey Musgraves

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUl_QQAj_oA&feature=player_embedded http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQ8xqyoZXCc&feature=player_embedded I first discovered Kacey Musgraves in 2013 with the release of her album Same Trailer Different Park which is an incredibly introspective and beautiful album.  My faves are Dandelion, Merry Go Round and of course, Follow Your Arrow.  She really came out as a powerhouse in "new country" but she's not even like the [...]

Macarons

I was watching a new show a friend recommended called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. In it, Jane Lynch plays a guest role in which she mentions macarons.  I suddenly remembered how much I loved these delicate yet intense (much like myself) treats! So I broke out my French Pastry cookbook and got to work. It [...]

Writing Milestone

I thought I would post this to show a tangible, physical illustration of my many years of hard work on my memoir. It's easy to talk about it and it doesn't seem real to others or even to oneself until it's in physical form, but here is my work (and my agony). I finally completed [...]

The Christian Reich

Written by Donovan Lord (2012) I wrote this article for Moot Magazine in 2012 as a response to the storm I saw coming at the time in America.  The transition and hijacking of America from a country of laws to a Theocracy.   Although I wouldn't say we are a theocracy at this point, it [...]

Writing A Memoir

I have been writing several books for several years.  To say I have trouble focusing on ONE book at a time is an understatement.  I am writing a couple of books about interior design/architecture and another, a memoir about my life. The memoir I started around 1998 when I thought I actually had enough to [...]
